CT-114 Tutor

A two-seater plane dedicated to pilot training, the CT-Tutor worked in the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1963 to 2000. Throughout these years, this first aircraft designed entirely by Canadair, proved reliable and solid. He retired at the beginning of the 21st century to be replaced by the CT-156 Harvard and the CT-155 Hawk. As part of Canada's 100th anniversary, a new aerobatic team was formed in 1967: the Centennial Paladins. This consists of eight CT-114 Tutor blue and gold. However, the Tutor is the main air show, becoming the Snowbird’s plane in 1971.
